I got myself a GA RX580 in exchange for my old HD6870 to be able to use Metal (WoW needs it now, and Mojave of course). Installation without problems, but when i start the system i get that annoying black screen after the Mac logo + loading bar screen.

The system does not stop, as i am still able to login and even access it via screencast from my macbook.

What i tried so far:
- (un-)checking 'InjectATI' and 'RadeonDeInit' in Clover
- set framebuffer to 'Dayman'
- installing Lilu & Whatevergreen kexts in /L/E
- installing Lilu & Whatevergreen kexts in /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other/
- enable/disable the iGPU
- changed system to 14,2
- cursing (a lot!)

more info
- system is 10.13.6 High Sierra
- display is connected to DVI and/or HDMI (have not testet DP, no adapters at hand)
- i read about diabling CSM in bios, but i did not find an option to do so


Any hint or help would be appreciated!

I had the same problem too. what I did is swap the HDMI cable to the iGPU HDMI port then switch back to my gfx card HDMI. And the screen came back.

but thinking this is not the best solution....
